CSA

stands for Community Supported Agriculture. We are members of our very local organic farm, and received a bounty of greens:



as you can see from yesterday's lunch. This is just for me, and there is A LOT of lettuce left for the remainder of the week. In addition, we received a huge amount of arugula, kale, and collard greens, as well as radishes and green onions. We are learning to like kale and collards, because, well, we have to!

And that little red pouch? I got it here.

That's alot of greens. I don't know if I could eat all of that. I'm not huge on salads but give me a tomato and I am a happy camper.

I don't think I could eat that much green either, but they sure make for a wonderful photo, including the pouch :)

thanks for your comments tut-tut. Everyone says it will get better, and i do believe it. It helps to have comments from people who know.

lovely lettuce!
we like kale chopped finely and fried with a bit of balsamic vinegar.

NO! Not the 'L' word!
I used to receive organic vegetable and fruit boxes every week in the UK. It was exciting to see what was in season each week but I always ended up with a mountain of sweet potatoes or a heap of kale come Friday...
Ditto to the fried greens comment, very tasty!

What a great idea and group to belong to.

There's a recipe for tarte aux blettes you could try that's in Chocolat and Zucchini.
A friend makes one that's brilliant though it differs slightly from the one in the book.
Wish I could get that service here. The veggies in our local shops are practically deep frozen because they travel...
